Speaker: E. Glenn Schellenberg, Professor at University of Toronto, Leader of the Music and Cognition Lab. Host: Ingemar Ernberg. Abstract. My talk provides a critical overview of research that has examined associations between music training and nonmusical abilities, with a focus on the available evidence for causation. I conclude that music training is associated with many nonmusical abilities. Some kinds of music training may enhance some abilities for some individuals, and group music lessons may have social benefits. Nevertheless, children who take music lessons differ from other children in multiple ways (demographic, cognitive, personality), which predict the decision to study music. These other individual differences need to be taken into account before inferring that music training causes improvements in nonmusical abilities..

This article presents a comparison of the aesthetic classification system of popular music, as employed by newspaper critics in the Los Angeles Times during 1985-86 and 2004-05. Through a relational discourse analysis of popular music album reviews, which applies the ecological technique of measuring niche spaces occupied by genres in an aesthetic discourse space, the genre structure of popular music is compared across a time period in which the field of popular music has arguably undergone a growing isomorphism of aesthetic principles and a blurring of boundaries between genres. Comparison of genre structures at two points in time suggests that the perception and interpretation of diverse genres has become more similar. Moreover, the boundary between two exemplary genres - rock music and pop music - has apparently become less salient for music critics, possibly signaling a weakening of commercial boundaries within the popular music field over the last two decades ...

If music be the food of learning, play on. Listening to and playing music is good for your mind, said most of the scientists who presented their research at the Neurosciences and Music conference held in late June at McGill University in Montreal.. At the conference, sponsored every three years by the Pierfranco and Luisa Mariani Foundation, a nonprofit group focusing on child neurology, a group of researchers from around the world discussed the interactions between music and the human brain. Topics ranged from how music training influences brain activity in adults and children to therapeutic uses for music in neurological disorders such as Parkinsons disease, and even to the idea that the relationship between music and the brain started far back in our evolutionary past.. Music training and cognitive performance. Recent research suggests that music training has an effect on cognitive functions such as spatial perception, attention and memory extending beyond the domain of music training itself ...

Since 2015 it has its home in the newly built Malmö Live Concert Hall. The orchestra has a complement of 94 musicians. Since 2011, the orchestras chief conductor is Marc Soustrot. His contract with the orchestra is through 2017. The orchestra was founded in 1925 with Walther Meyer-Radon as the first chief conductor, from 1925 to 1929. Herbert Blomstedt held the title of Huvuddirigent (principal conductor) during 1962-1963. Past principal guest conductors have included Brian Priestman (1988-1990), Gilbert Varga (1997-2000), and Mario Venzago (2000-2003). At first the orchestra performed both symphony concerts and served as the orchestra of the Malmö Opera and Music Theatre, but from 1991 the orchestra has been exclusively devoted to symphony orchestra concerts.[citation needed] Between 1985 ...
Embodied music cognition is a direction within systematic musicology interested in studying the role of the human body in relation to all musical activities. It considers the human body as the natural mediator between mind (focused on musical intentions, meanings, significations) and physical environment (containing musical sound and other types of energy that affords human action). Given the impact of body movement on musical meaning formation and signification, the musical mind is said to be embodied. Embodiment assumes that what happens in the mind is depending on properties of the body, such as kinaesthetic properties. Embodied music cognition tends to see music perception as based on action. For example, many people move when they listen to music. Through movement, it is assumed that people give meaning to music. This type of meaning-formation is corporeal, rather than cerebral because it is understood through the body. This is different from a disembodied approach to music cognition, which ...
Our psychophysical and fMRI data show that piano practicing molds audiovisual temporal binding and synchrony perception by a context-specific neural mechanism. Behaviorally, musicians relative to nonmusicians exhibited a significantly narrower temporal integration window for music but not for speech. At the neural level, musicians showed increased audiovisual asynchrony effects and effective connectivity for music in an STS-premotor-cerebellar circuitry. Collectively, these results suggest that piano practicing provides more precise estimates of the relative audiovisual timings in music by fine tuning an internal forward model that maps from action plans of piano playing onto visible finger movements and concurrent piano sounds.. Accumulating evidence suggests that long-term music training changes auditory processing throughout the cortical hierarchy and produces behavioral benefits beyond music performance (11, 19) (e.g., most prominently in speech processing) (10). In contrast to these generic ...
CONCLUSIONS: The introduction of background music tended to increase attention test scores of persons with schizophrenia. Moreover, the increase in test attention scores was statistically significant when popular music was played in the background. This result suggested that background music may improve attention performance of persons with chronic schizophrenia. Future research is required with a larger sample size to support the study results ...
Music and Its Effects on Our Emotions: Can Music Really Change Your Mood?. Music can control a much larger part of your life than most people would like to believe. Music can affect us in ways in which were not even aware of, and for this reason, music is simply amazing. There is a large number of studies behind music. Not even just the typical music you hear on the radio or that you download from the Internet, but any sounds and the way they can affect your mood and reflect your personallity. It has been proven that certain types of music can evoke sadness, while others can give you an excitement. Music is used in millions of places for this reason. Advertisements. Advertisements and movies are based around the audio! Certain types of music are more likely to evoke emotions in people which will in turn make them feel a certain way. Sometimes this is great for producers in the economy because they can use music in their advertisements to help produce more profits, because people will become ...
This study examined the effects of vocal and non-vocal background music on the task performance of introverts and extraverts on a memorization task. Prior to the memorization task, participants (N = 38) completed Eysencks Personality Inventory in order to determine introversion and extraversion. In the presence of either vocal or non-vocal music, participants memorized and recalled a 15-word list. The results did not support the hypothesis suggesting that extroverts would perform better on a task with vocal background music than introverts. Analysis was calculated using a 2X2 between-groups ANOVA design.
We all have different preferences in music. It moves us in different ways, whether it is calming, or makes us happy or even angry and irritated. Music is therapeutic; it evokes memories and emotions, good and bad. We all react differently to different melodies, and animals are no different. Whales and birds sing their own songs and other species make beautiful music, especially during mating season. But do animals appreciate human tunes? Many do. Elephants have been known to dance to classical music, and there are many articles about cows that enjoy relaxing music. The University of Leicester researchers discovered that cows produced 3% more milk when they were listening to music by REM, Simon & Garfunkel and classical music, as opposed to hard rock music.

For those of you interested in music and the brain, I recommend Daniel Levitins book, This is Your Brain on Music. Levins book is especially interesting because he started his career as a musician. He knows a lot about music and has some interesting stories about songs and musicians. He now teaches and researches at McGill. In his book he talks about the brain, how music is processed, and related MRI research. What was interesting to me is how many parts of the brain are used to process music. Given that music can evoke powerful emotions, I assumed that the amygdala and primitive brain centers would be involved. Surprisingly, listening to music involves anticipation and memory which rely on higher cerebral functions. Many brain centers are used to enjoy music. There is not one localized brain center for music. In a very accessible book, Levin combines his knowledge about music with state of the art neuroscience. Anyone who is interested in music and the brain should definitely read this book. ...
This book explains musical instruments in their various forms: how they work, what they can do, and how they came to be the way they are. It concentrates on instruments of western music built to play in musical traditions transmitted in large part by notated scores and parts. The recent growth of early music performance is reflected in an emphasis on the historical development of the main types of instrument. For each class of instrument, the underlying acoustical principles are outlined and the commonly found members of the family are described. Their manufacture, playing techniques, and performance practice are treated.
Survey of perceptual and cognitive aspects of the psychology of music, with special emphasis on underlying neuronal and neurocomputational representations and mechanisms. Basic perceptual dimensions of hearing (pitch, timbre, consonance/roughness, loudness, auditory grouping) form salient qualities, contrasts, patterns and streams that are used in music to convey melody, harmony, rhythm and separate voices. Perceptual, cognitive, and neurophysiological aspects of the temporal dimension of music (rhythm, timing, duration, temporal expectation) are explored. Special topics include comparative, evolutionary, and developmental psychology of music perception, biological vs. cultural influences, Gestaltist vs. associationist vs. schema-based theories, comparison of music and speech perception, parallels between music cognition and language, music and cortical action, and the neural basis of music performance.

In an early scene in The Tree of Life, the new movie by Terrence Malick, an authoritarian patriarch played by Brad Pitt disrupts a family dinner to instruct his three young sons in the appreciation of classical music.. Before their inexpressive faces, he brandishes an album cover of Brahms Fourth Symphony, performed by the NBC Symphony Orchestra and conducted by Arturo Toscanini. Pitts character rather obnoxiously conducts along to the recording, which has been playing throughout the meal, and exhorts his boys to open their ears to Brahms majestic chords.. Classical music clearly plays an important role in this 1950s suburban Texas household, as it does in The Tree of Life.. In each of his five feature films to date, Malick has used classical music as his principal soundtrack. The Tree of Life features selections and snippets from more than 30 individual pieces -- including works by Brahms, Mahler, Bach, Górecki and Holst. They are all woven together seamlessly with the help of some ...

Author Summary Music is a complex acoustic experience that we often take for granted. Whether sitting at a symphony hall or enjoying a melody over earphones, we have no difficulty identifying the instruments playing, following various beats, or simply distinguishing a flute from an oboe. Our brains rely on a number of sound attributes to analyze the music in our ears. These attributes can be straightforward like loudness or quite complex like the identity of the instrument. A major contributor to our ability to recognize instruments is what is formally called timbre. Of all perceptual attributes of music, timbre remains the most mysterious and least amenable to a simple mathematical abstraction. In this work, we examine the neural underpinnings of musical timbre in an attempt to both define its perceptual space and explore the processes underlying timbre-based recognition. We propose a scheme based on responses observed at the level of mammalian primary auditory cortex and show that it can accurately
This dissertation argues that music is always ideological. For this thesis two lines of argument are given. The first states that music is always ideological because it requires verbal discourses about itself. The second line of argument states that music is always ideological because it influences the listener affectively.. That language is necessary for talk about music is trivial. The point is rather that talk about music is necessary for auditive behaviour to turn into complex cultural artefacts. Without language humans would have no more music than birds, whales or duetting apes.. At the other extreme, musical experiences are affective in nature. To have a musical experience is to experience an affective unfolding through time. Affect (as distinguished from the emotions) refers to the amodal properties of perception-such as intensity, shape, rhythm-and lies at the heart of human communication. With its roots in early mother-infant interaction, affective communication is inherently social. ...

Honing, H. (2004) When a good fit is not good enough: a case study on the final ritard. Proceedings of the International Conference on Music Perception and Cognition (ICMPC). 510-513. Abstract. The relation between music and motion has been a topic of much theoretical and empirical research. An important contribution is made by a family of computational theories, so-called kinematic models, that make an explicit relation between the laws of physical motion in the real world and expressive timing in music performance (see Friberg & Sundberg, 1999). These models were shown to have a good fit with a variety of empirical data, most notably that of the final ritard in music performance: the typical slowing down at the end of a music performance. However, the predictions of these kinematic models are independent of (1) the number of events, (2) the rhythmic structure, and (3) the overall tempo of the performance; These factors have no effect on the predicted shape of the ritardando. Computer ...

The purpose of this research is to build a music-retrieval system with a speech-recognition interface that facilitates both identification of a musical piece and music playback in everyday life. We think a speech-recognition interface is well-suited to music information retrieval (MIR), especially retrieval of a musical piece by entering its title or the artists name. At home or in a car, for example, an MIR-based jukebox system with a speech-recognition interface would allow users to change background music just by saying the name of a musical piece or an artist. At music-listening stations in music stores or on karaoke machines, a speech-recognition interface could also help users find musical pieces they have been looking for without using any input device other than a microphone. Most previous MIR research, however, has not explored how speech recognition can be used for retrieving music information, although various MIR interfaces using text, symbols, MIDI, or audio signals have been ...
Building on his monumental revision of the Seventh Edition, PeterBurkholder has refined an inspired narrative for a new generation ofstudents, placing people at the center of the story.The narrative of A History of Western Music naturally focuses on the musical works, styles, genres, and ideas that have proven most influential, enduring, and significant-but it also encompasses a wide range of music, from religious to secular, from serious to humorous, from art music to popular music, and from Europe to the Americas. With a six-part structure emphasizing the musics reception and continued influence, Burkholders narrative establishes a social and historical context for each repertoire to reveal its legacy and its significance today.
Italy in the early seventeenth century witnessed a revolution in the composition of instrumental music. Large, varied, and strikingly experimental in nature, this new repertoire constituted arguably the first significant body of independent, idiomatic instrumental music in the western tradition. In an age most widely known for its innovations in vocal music, Galileo Galilei explained that, in fact, it was instrumental music that was most effective as a means to
Introduction Basic Emotion Theory proper (BET) has only recently begun to make an appearance in musical research (see Juslin, 1998; 2013a&b). However, much theory and research in music psychology has been driven by a more general assumption that musical emotions should be investigated in terms of discrete ad-hoc categories associated with the ways specific neural mechanisms respond to musical stimuli (see Schiavio et al., 2016). This has been problematized, however, by studies that show that the physiological changes associated with musical emotions do not always align clearly with those exhibited in association with everyday emotion categories (Krumhansl, 1997, p. 351; Scherer & Zentner, 2001). Such concerns have led some scholars to posit that musical emotions may be somehow different (or perhaps impoverished) versions of real emotions (Sloboda, 2000). In response to this, other researchers (e.g., Scherer & Couthino, 2014) have developed models that do away with the notion of basic emotions
Introduction. The Music of Mozart Caroline Bruce Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born in 1756 and lived until he was 35, when he died in 1791. He was a composer of classical music, which was predominantly composed in the second half of the 18th century. Mozart was brought up in Salzburg, Austria, and wrote music for the archbishop of Salzburg. After a while, Mozarts disagreements with the archbishop became too strong and Mozart moved to Vienna and started work as a freelance composer. In Vienna he was able to concentrate on composing the music that he (and Vienna) loved, that he hadnt been able to compose in Salzburg, such as operas and concertos. ...read more. Middle. His most famous operas were Marriage of Figaro and The Magic Flute, and he composed many concertos, including 27 for piano, and many others for violin and clarinet. He also composed other concertos for flute, horn and oboe among other instruments. He composed the types of music that many other classical composers worked on at ...
Music can evoke positive emotions, which in turn can lower the listeners stress levels. Everyday music listening is therefore a simple and effective way to enhance well-being and health, according to a new doctoral thesis in psychology from the University of Gothenburg.. The thesis is based partly on a survey study involving 207 individuals, partly on an intervention study where an experiment group consisting of 21 persons listened to self-chosen music for 30 minutes per day for two weeks while an equally sized control group got to relax without music.. The results of the studies show that positive emotions were experienced both more often and more intensively in connection with music listening. The experiment group did also perceive less stress and had lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol. The more the participants in the survey study liked the music, the less stress they experienced.. But it should be pointed out that when studying emotional responses to music it is important to ...
Inhaltsangabe: What is the broadest significance of musical rhythm? Human attitudes to the world are reflected in it, according to Gustav Becking. Writing in the 1920s, Becking proposed a novel method of finding systematic differences of attitude between individual composers, between nations, and between historical time periods. He dealt throughout with Western classical music, from the period approximately 1600-1900. His method was to observe in fine detail the pattern of motion and pressure traced out by a small baton allowed to move in sympathy with a given musical excerpt. The various patterns arising for individual composers were represented graphically, and in that form became known as Becking curves . Implications were touched upon in psychology, sociology and philosophy. His thesis is now published in English translation from the original German for the first time, with many annotations.. About the Author: Gustav Becking (1894-1945) studied at the Universities of Leipzig and ...

Music and Its effects on Societies Emotions Intro: What do you feel when you hear a rapid drum beat? Or even the shivering sound of the low hum of a bagpipe? We all probably at one time turned on music to lift our spirits from a sad time in our life or even just to amp up our attitude even farther from a joyous occasion. What is it in music that causes different emotions to come out and affect our attitude? Well thats a question that is still being researched but we have somewhat of a understanding of it.. Then well take a look at three specific genres. Rock, folklore, and classical. 1. ) Music and the Brain. A. ) Music is processed in the right hemisphere of the brain * There are different neurons that respond according to what kind of music is playing. Music can effect hormones, encourage the production of cortisol, testosterone, and oxytocin. Music can even trigger a release of endorphins.

Emotion-related areas of the brain, such as the medial frontal cortices, amygdala and striatum are activated during listening to sad or happy music as well as during listening to pleasurable music. Indeed, in music, like in other arts, sad and happy emotions might co-exist and be distinct from emotions of pleasure or enjoyment. Here we aimed at discerning the neural correlates of sadness or happiness in music as opposed those related to musical enjoyment. We further investigated whether musical expertise modulates the neural activity during affective listening of music. To these aims, 13 musicians and 16 non-musicians brought to the lab their most liked and disliked musical pieces with a happy and sad connotation. Based on a listening test, we selected the most representative 18-sec excerpts of the emotions of interest for each individual participant. Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) recordings were obtained while subjects listened to and rated the excerpts. The cortico-thalamo-striatal

EVANSTON --- Age-related delays in neural timing are not inevitable and can be avoided or offset with musical training, according to a new study from Northwestern University. The study is the first to provide biological evidence that lifelong musical experience has an impact on the aging process.. Measuring the automatic brain responses of younger and older musicians and non-musicians to speech sounds, researchers in the Auditory Neuroscience Laboratory discovered that older musicians had a distinct neural timing advantage. "The older musicians not only outperformed their older non-musician counterparts, they encoded the sound stimuli as quickly and accurately as the younger non-musicians," said Northwestern neuroscientist Nina Kraus. "This reinforces the idea that how we actively experience sound over the course of our lives has a profound effect on how our nervous system functions." Kraus, professor of communication sciences in the School of Communication and professor of neurobiology and ...

Honing, H. (2006) Computational modeling of music cognition: a case study on model selection. Music Perception. 23(5), 365-376. Abstract. While the most common way of evaluating a computational model is to see whether it shows a good fit with the empirical data, recent literature on theory testing and model selection criticizes the assumption that this is actually strong evidence for the validity of a model. This paper presents a case study from music cognition (modeling the ritardandi in music performance) and compares two families of computational models (kinematic and perceptual) using three different model selection criteria: goodness-of-fit, model simplicity, and the degree of surprise in the predictions. In the light of what counts as strong evidence for a models validity --namely that it makes limited range, non-smooth, and relatively surprising predictions-- the perception-based model is preferred over the kinematic model.

Editors note: The use of music in therapy for the brain has evolved rapidly as brain-imaging techniques have revealed the brains plasticity-its ability to change-and have identified networks that music activates. Armed with this growing knowledge, doctors and researchers are employing music to retrain the injured brain. Studies by the authors and other researchers have revealed that because music and motor control share circuits, music can improve movement in patients who have suffered a stroke or who have Parkinsons disease. Research has shown that neurologic music therapy can also help patients with language or cognitive difficulties, and the authors suggest that these techniques should become part of rehabilitative care. Future findings may well indicate that music should be included on the list of therapies for a host of other disorders as well. The role of music in therapy has gone through some dramatic shifts in the past 15 years, driven by new insights from research into music and ...
Conceived as an introduction to a vast, immensely rich and diverse set of repertories, this book explores the sounding forms of Sub-Saharan African music. Aimed at a general musical readership, it describes the major dimensions of African music and the values upon which they are built. An opening chapter invites readers to sample the basic qualities of African music and reflect on the challenges of writing about African music. In subsequent chapters, the book discusses the place of music in society, musical instruments, the relationship between language and music, rhythm, melody, form, and harmony. A final chapter traces various appropriations of African music. In conveying the dynamics within each of the core dimensions, a broad orientation is typically supplemented by close readings of selected repertory items. These include an Ewe dirge, an Nkundo lullaby, an Aka Pygmy childrens song, an item of Central African entertainment music, an art song, and a piano etude. Although the focus throughout is on
Today music has become an essential part of the film making process. In fact, music has become one of the primary factors in determining if a feature film is going to do well at the box office or not. But how is the music chosen for a feature film?. Today producers, a directors, agents, songwriters and composers all want to be involved in choosing the music you hear at the movies. Ultimately, however, the final decision rests with the producer - who is strongly influenced by his or her director. They are responsible for the final decision of which music will be used. Movie music falls into three basic categories.. The first category is the underscore, or background music. Think of the haunting James Horner score for "Titanic," John Williams lilting music for "ET" or Randy Newmans whimsical score "Toy Story." The second category is specific songs used in the film. Sometimes producers decide on using preexisting songs that fit the mood of their film. A good example is the song "Hungry Heart" ...
Dr Kelly Jakubowski is a Post-Doctoral Research Assistant on an AHRC-funded research grant on "Interpersonal Entrainment in Music Performance". This project aims to quantify, describe, and compare interpersonal interactions within musical performances across a wide variety of cultures and musical styles.. Kelly studied Music Performance (violin) and Music Theory for her undergraduate (Baldwin Wallace University, USA) and Masters degrees (Ohio State University, USA). She then pursued an MSc and PhD in music psychology at Goldsmiths, University of London. Her PhD research (completed in 2015) was funded by the Leverhulme Trust and focused on developing new behavioural and computational methods for studying musical imagery and involuntary memory for music (including the phenomenon of having an "earworm", or tune stuck in ones head). She has also conducted and published research on absolute pitch, memory for musical pitch and tempo, and emotional responses to music. In 2015, she was awarded the ...

Power of Music to Influence the Young Many parents are very enthusiastic to invest in music lessons for their kids for several reasons. There are many purposes why it is necessary for young children to learn musical instruments. Studies have been done by various experts to determine the effects of learning a music instrument on cognitive development. As a result, they have learned that children who take music lessons present great enhancement in spatial-temporal reasoning skills which are needed for learning math and science. They have also discovered that those kids that can play musical tools surpass the performance in reading comprehension when compared with their classmates that are not taking musical training. Moreover, these children obtain enhanced memory skills as they continue to keep learn music. Many investigations have verified that these music lessons provides kids an academic advantage simply because it increases their IQ. The second advantage of having music lessons is that it ...
Ive read the book and I think that:Musicophilia is one of a kind book , Oliver Sacks turns his neurological eye on how music interacts with our brain. Music occupies more areas of our brain than language does, and for most people, music stirs memories and emotions and inhabits our daily lives. For some people, music can spark other senses including taste, can calm or animate people with Alzheimers or Parkinsons, or in the case of a musician who lost the ability to remember, it allows him to still perform professionally. Yet for others, music can be a cacophony that attacks their minds or be the source of hallucinations. Musicophilia has received mostly positive reviews with the New York Times saying, In the end, Sackss catalog of oddities sheds little systematic light on the mystery of music. He cannot be blamed for this - the science of music is still in its early days. Readers will probably be grateful that Sacks, unlike Freud, is happy to revel in phenomena that he cannot yet explain ...
The power of music to aid sleep is evidenced in the existence of music for sleep CDs and radio stations. Despite their popularity, there is little evidence-based research on how sleep quantity or quality is impacted by music.. In particular, no study to date has combined music with sleep measures for long enough to be effective and most studies take place in hospitals not in peoples own beds.. Our research will redress this situation by first, carrying out a large-scale Internet survey on music and sleep, to determine how people are currently using music when they encounter sleep difficulties in their day-to-day life. Using the results of this survey we will then carry out an informed, long-term music for sleep intervention study in peoples own homes using new sleep monitoring technologies.. Our research team combines different expertise to explore new pathways to impact for music and sleep research. We also aim to train postgraduate students in the UK in the use of sleep technologies and ...

Music and cognition refers to the study of musical thinking. In basic terms, it seeks to understand the mental processes involved in listening to, creating, and performing music. Musical thinking is, however, a vast, complex issue that also implicates memory, emotion, language, culture, and the thinking body. To address such a highly interdisciplinary topic, articles in this entry draw mainly from music psychology, cognitive science, ethnomusicology, and music theory, complemented by work in related fields. Though publications in music psychology and neuroscience of music greatly outnumber contributions from the humanities, it is the intention of this article to present a balance of theoretical and methodological perspectives. Moreover, while scholarly methods, goals, and discourse often differ radically from one discipline to the next, there has been an increasing interest in cross-disciplinary dialogue in music and cognition research. Grouping scholarship by theme in this bibliography, as ...
I’d like to say in summary that PlayLouder MSP is a music ISP. If your priorities are privacy and anonymity PlayLouder MSP might not be for you. We’re trying to create the greatest music and broadband bundle the world has yet seen. To do that we need the music industry on side, and we need more and greater innovation in music discovery and management technology. We have taken a very bold position in the ISP world, to say that we can help our subscribers have a better music experience than they would get on standard broadband, and we can do that by dropping the adversarial stance and finding common ground with the music creators and rightsholders. The ‘price’ for this, if price is the right word, is that the music needs to be monitored so that the royalty pool can be fairly shared; and the value of the music on our network needs to be protected to that other businesses don’t get the advantage of our hard work and extra costs, so we need a ‘walled gardenâ ...

Music has no language. It does not comply with barriers and bars. A successfully crafted music always runs in the ears of an admirer like a charm. The definition and genres have changed a lot, yet humans find it fascinating. At least once, a human listens to music every day to find the latent desires and lost emotions.. Without music, life is dull. The way we see the colors around us, music is the same for our ears. The sense triggers in its own ways when it comes across through a great score. The body and mind join and seem to enjoy when legs move and the person closes his or her eyes in utmost satisfaction.. Music all around us. We listen to a beggar singing to gather his last meal of the day, a thrilling score during the climax of an interesting movie, preludes or even a bird chirping at a distance. These define a different universe where there is no castes or race, only enthusiasm for music. It is said that music is the best healer. A soul can become ecstatic while listening to a nice ...
There is a need for providing a vehicular music replay system that can allow a car user to select a music source appropriate to the users character or biological condition even from genres unknown to the user, allow even a first music source to be felt suited for the user, and consequently enhance an emotion about encounter with an unknown music source. The system stores music sources to be replayed in music source databases in association with applicable user state data reflecting a user state containing at least one of a user character, mental condition, and physical condition. The system retrieves a music source corresponding to the current user state acquired in a car. During the retrieval, a higher retrieval priority is provided for a music source having a lower replay history in the past.

It been shown time and time again how constructive music education is in all areas of cognitive development, but it also proves to be especially helpful to those with Autism Spectrum Disorder, (ASD). Autism and music seem to go hand and hand when thoughtfully implemented and utilized. As showcased by the Autism Spectrum Disorder & Music Infographic. There are many things about music and autism that complement each other and really allow for the person with autism to excel. There are many things that we would find very obvious but more powerful than words can allow. The most important one being that music is human, a universal language. When considering that many people with autism struggle with expressive language, this is the ultimate mode of communication, one that doesnt need words. This in turn can make the music environment non-threatening and a prime avenue to learn and express oneself. Music also lends itself to a secure and safe environment for those with autism because it provides the ...
A computerized musical instrument system has a processing system for converting multiple modes of music data input into relative rhythm coded data in the format of pitch codes and relative rhythm codes for designating respective types of rhythm elements, including the pitches, as they occur in the beats or other basic music intervals of a music piece. The relative rhythm codes represent the relative proportions by which the designated rhythm elements divide each beat. In a relative rhythm coding mode, pitch and rhythm data are entered via a keyboard and relative rhythm code and control code keys. The music data may also be input in the form of MIDI formatted data, audio or digital sound input, real-time performance (keypress) data, or optically scanned data from printed music notation. The instrument system can provide various forms of outputs including synthesized sound, a display or music notation, stored music data, printed output, and related audio and/or image effects.
The required undergraduate core curriculum in music includes 2-3 junior/senior-level semesters of music history, taken after completing the two-year music theory sequence. These courses provide a comprehensive background in the development of Western art music for all undergraduate musicians, regardless of specialization. Additional elective study in the area may be required for some baccalaureate music programs, as well.. Our core music history courses meet three times weekly. The language and perspective gained through these courses enable students to better understand the music they read and hear, and to converse intelligently with other musicians-including their teachers, peers, and their own future students. You can read descriptions of these and other Music History & Literature area courses in the Undergraduate Catalog. ...
With classical musics popularity thriving in Asia (as millions of youngsters in China in particular are studying piano and violin from early age), and with the financial difficulties facing classical music in the West, opera houses in particular (as the New York City Opera bankruptcy, the present negotiations at the Metropolitan Opera, the last minute rescue of this years season at the Rome opera house, and the constant strikes at classical music venues in France suggest), the question is: can classical music be financed without significant government subsidies? ...
One of the most common "icebreaker" conversation topics is music preferences. We ask friends what theyre listening to on their iPods, bloggers post playlists on their sidebars, and one of the most popular websites on the planet (MySpace) is built around sharing music. The assumption is that musical preferences can tell us something beyond what someone likes to listen to - we believe we can judge a persons personality, fashion preferences, and more based just on the style of music they prefer.. For me, its difficult not to form a mental picture of a person when I hear what music they listen to. A heavy metal fan evokes an entirely different mental image for me compared to a classical music buff or someone who likes religious music. But are these mental pictures accurate? Can we really make reliable judgments based just on music preferences? Until recently, very little research had been conducted on the subject.. Weve discussed one such study here on Cognitive Daily, by Peter Rentfrow and ...
On March 20 the Grand Hall of St. Petersburg Philharmonic Society will host the final gala concert of the 3rd International Admiralty Music Festival, whose mission is to increase public interest in the music of navy orchestras, or sea music, as it had been once called. The project was inspired, directed, and produced by Alexei Karabanov, the principal conductor of the Admiralty Orchestra of Leningrad Naval Base. His orchestra takes part in all festival events. The gala concert of the festival is entitled Cell Phone Music. The concert is dedicated to the birthday of great German composer Johann Sebastian Bach, whose music is still so popular it is often selected for cell phone ring melodies. Especially popular is The Joke from Bach s Suite No. 3. Bach s masterpieces will be performed in the concert along with the works of Mozart, Rossini, Bizet, Wagner, Rimsky-Korsakov and Gerschwin. All the music featured in the show represents not only popular classical pieces, but most favorite cell phone ...

Formerly known as Pomegranates, Cincinatti four piece Healing Power are the forces of Jacob Merritt, Isaac Karns, Joey Cook and Pierce Geary, who are are upgrading their healthy living. From recording their upcoming self-titled EP for Broken Circles between a lake house in Tennessee to Sound of Music in Richmond, Virginia; the quartet brings you music for moving on. Music to help move forward. Music to soothe. Music to help forgive. Music for learning how to forgive. Music for healing, music that summons some a kind of inner courage, an inner power that was there all along.. The opening lyrics of "Heartache" illustrate the songs statement and thesis and dedication to embracing life. "I learned the difference between, living and dying, it was the realization of what is surviving". Healing Power creates a song that is carved out of their own rules of order. The chorus that begs "dont let me break" is interspersed with moments of inner thought clouds that bring winter weather before taking off on ...
This bilateral overlap has applications to therapy as well as language instruction. The effect of music on memory is highly complex, with different types of musical memory engaging unique representations of neural correlates. Musical memory is not represented symmetrically across the brain. Studies have shown that there is a significant amount of lateralization, with asymmetrical specialization, in processing specific elements of musical stimuli. Not only are there distinctive brain regions responsible for memory types, but different brain regions are also responsible for characterizing diverse types of music such as lyrical and non-lyrical (instrumental). Music has also been empirically shown to affect human emotions and higher cognitive processes. Neuroimaging studies have demonstrated that listening to music strongly activates the limbic and paralimbic emotional areas of the brain, as well as the nucleus accumbens which is involved in motivation and reward processing ...
Italian researchers have discovered that human blood flow and respiratory rates can follow the pace of music, which suggests that doctors could one day use music as part of rehabilitation for patients suffering from heart disease or stroke.. Writing in Circulation: Journal of the American Heart Association, Dr. Luciano Bernardi and colleagues said that the heart rate of healthy adults appeared to change along with the change in musical rhythms.. The researchers had previously discovered that faster paced music caused listeners respiratory rate, heart rate and blood pressure to increase. Once the music was stopped, the rates declined.. "The profile of music (crescendo or decrescendo) is continuously tracked by the cardiovascular and respiratory systems," said Dr. Bernardi, a professor of internal medicine at Pavia University in Pavia, Italy.. "Music induces a continuous, dynamic "" and to some extent predictable "" change in the cardiovascular system.". "It is not only the emotion that creates ...
Triplag Music is proud to present the seventh release, A Chain Of Mind. Compiled by Triplag Music label DJ e-MO (Masaru Ozaki) it brings together a very tasteful and exotic blend of artists from Japan, Russia, Sweden, Venezuela, Brazil and Switzerland. And here is what idea e-MO put behind this compilation: I made this CD with the intent of utilizing music to synchronize the volition and thoughts inside my own head with those of others. I chose music as the medium of expression for the Senses, which can be neither expressed vocally nor manifested in physical shape. This CD will become a catalyst to draw out the dormant power that lies within not only the trance freaks, but within every human and living being in the world. When the mind on the receiving side of music and the mind on the producing side of music synchronize, I believe that this is when the deeply rooted true form of music - the form in which it was meant to be - is realized. This compilation is a message under the guise of music ...
By mentioning that I thought about these questions, of course, I bring them up without actually bringing them up (and Ill go ahead and call myself a sneaky bastard for doing so), so in a sense I didnt edit myself as much as Id like to think I did. This portion of the discussion ends right here, however, and for good reason - Martins music has not been allowed to speak for itself for far too long. Perhaps the fact that a number of his followers found out about his music during their youth group days could explain the almost frightening level of zeal with which the Starflyer gospel is often spread; in any event, no one ever just discusses the music - its always the music plus faith, or the music plus its background, or the music plus the fact that far too many people havent heard it (and here I am rambling about the music plus the dialogue that usually accompanies the music ...

Exceptionally illuminating and philosophically sophisticated. ---Ted Cohen, Professor of Philosophy, University of Chicago "In this audacious and long-awaited book, Joel Rudinow takes seriously a range of interrelated issues that most music theorizing is embarrassed to tackle. People often ask me about music and spirituality. With Soul Music, I can finally recommend a book that offers genuine philosophical insight into the topic." ---Theodore Gracyk, Professor of Philosophy, Minnesota State University Moorhead The idea is as strange as it is commonplace---that the "soul" in soul music is more than just a name, that somehow the music truly taps into something essential rooted in the spiritual notion of the soul itself. Or is it strange? From the civil rights movement and beyond, soul music has played a key, indisputable role in moments of national healing. Of course, American popular music has long been embroiled in controversies over its spiritual purity (or lack thereof). But why? However easy ...

Abstract: An overview of the history of debates on the correlation of musical skills with neurological functions in health and disease is presented. Selected biographical sketches of composers (Hildegard von Bingen, Mozart, Donizetti, Mussorgsky, and Ravel), whose neurological disease may have influenced musical creativity, are discussed. The search for information on the localization of skills in the brains of musicians is reviewed. The relation of mental ability to brain structure is a prominent theme in the history of neuroscience, and the effort to localize musical skills dates back to the excesses of phrenology in the early nineteenth century. The phrenological tables included an "organ of music" among the sites subserving intellectual capabilities, mapped on the basis of palpation of the head bumps. Since the second half of the nineteenth century, when the study of brain physiology, anatomy, and pathology had a remarkable development and impact on the neurosciences, structural features of ...

Listening to music can reduce chronic pain by up to 21 per cent and depression by up to 25 per cent, according to a paper in the latest UK-based Journal of Advanced Nursing.. It can also make people feel more in control of their pain and less disabled by their condition.. Researchers carried out a controlled clinical trial with sixty people, dividing them into two music groups and a control group.. They found that people who listened to music for an hour every day for a week reported improved physical and psychological symptoms compared to the control group.. The participants, who had an average age of 50, were recruited from pain and chiropractic clinics in Ohio, USA. They had been suffering from a range of painful conditions, including osteoarthritis, disc problems and rheumatoid arthritis, for an average of six and a half years.. 90 per cent said the pain affected more than one part of their body and 95 per cent said it was continuous. Before the music study, participants reported that their ...
Music is fervour Music is energy Music is joy Music is creativeness Music is endless Music is love Music is soul Music is life Music is among the best creations of human kind in the course of history. Music plays an important part in our everyday life. Its a way of expressing our feelings. Music surrounds our lives at different moments of lives, whether we hear it on the radio, on TV, from our vehicle and home stereos. Different sorts of music are applicable for different occasions. We come across it in the mellifluous tunes of a classical concert or in the devotional strains of a bhajan, the marriage band, or the reaper in the fields breaking into song to express the wonders of life. Even warbling in the loo gives us a content beginning to the day. Its usually been part of our organisation with particular feelings, and those feelings themselves have lead to great music. The origins of Indian music can be tracked back to the repeating of the Sama Veda almost four thousand years back. The ...
The musicians of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra voted on Friday to end their six-month strike, accepting steep pay cuts in order to return to work. The vote brings to an end a bitter and costly walkout that was one of the lengthiest in the classical-music world in recent years.. As part of their agreement, musicians agreed to pay cuts of almost 25%, said Greg Bowens, a representative for the musicians. Management had originally sought pay cuts estimated at around 30%. The new three-year contract, which was ratified Friday, is the result of marathon negotiations that took place last weekend.. Bowens said in a phone interview that after six months of striking, feelings are still kind of raw, but he added that the orchestras musicians are committed to doing a good job. Rehearsals resumed this week and there are free concerts scheduled for this weekend.. A spokeswoman for the orchestra said that the new contract runs through Aug. 31, 2014. As part of the contract, the orchestra has reduced the ...
As Benjamin Schweitzer explains in the CD booklet, "...there is something in the gestures and tonality of [Baroque music], which is closer to modern times than one would assume in the first place". The Freiburg project is a fascinating exercise in reversing the early music trickle up effect that I referred to in the post that started the specialisation hare running. All the young composers fully exploit the unique sonic palette of the Baroque instruments and the result is both thought provoking new music and a valuable exercise in ear candling. Although copies can still be found, Harmonia Mundis About Baroque CD is now deleted and cannot be bought as an MP3 download. Why are so many of the CDs that feature here deleted? As Mahler and a handful of others increasingly dominate concert and CD/MP3 release schedules whatever happened to classical musics much vaunted long tail ...

I love teaching music. There is no other profession out there that gives as much satisfaction that teaching does. It has been a wonderful journey and experience helping students to understand and appreciate the music that they play.

Lets look at the options for learning music by reading.. Firstly one should look at the age of the student. If a child starts learning piano at the age for 5 or 6 years, then they are often too young read their own language fluently, therefore it is unlikely that they will be able to read the music, decipher it and then play it.. The variation in students ability to decode information from music in beginners, ages 7-11 years, is enormous.. An understanding of music notation and how it is deciphered and decoded by the brain, is important to start this conversation. Music notation written on a stave is a vertical (up-down) representation of pitch and the piano is a horizontal (left-right) representation of pitch.. The next layer of complexity is the layout of notes on a piano. Notes are not found by using the white keys, they are found by their relationship to the black notes. Keyboard geography is important to understand; and this explains why many courses begin with playing 2 or 3 black notes ...

Music performance anxiety (MPA) is widespread and has a detrimental effect on performance affecting amateur and professional musicians alike (Kenny, 2011; Wilson, 2002). Previous approaches for alleviation have focused on the conscious mind; however this research targets both the conscious and unconscious mind through two psychotherapies - cognitive hypnotherapy (CH) and eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR). The efficacy of the therapies was investigated with 52 Grade 8 pianists at the Universities of Leeds and Sheffield and at Leeds College of Music, initially a pilot study of 6 followed by 46 in a further study. A multimodal design was adopted using four different measurements: the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (Spielberger, 1983); a self-report questionnaire (SRQ) testing subjective anxiety; assessments of performance; and subjective perceptions of therapies pre- and post-treatment. To further support the quantitative data, qualitative investigations were conducted through the ...
